    If memory serves, posting from an iPhone, both flavors of MgdDbg (AutoCAD and Civil 3D [aka Snoop DB]) come with their source... Have you tried changing the necessary assembly references, and recompiling for 2015 yourself?

    Cheers

    I tried to recompile MgdDbg 2010, but apparently the structure changed a lot since then, I know there is a 2012 version but I can't find, can someone upload it and I will try to recompile it

    Thanks

    I managed to recompile it for AutoCAD 2014, however I still have trouble with AutoCAD 2015 mainly because some deprecated classes (e.g. MaterialTraits2, MentalRayRenderSettingsTraits2)

    Any suggestions about these classes (should I comment them?!)

    Hi,

    You can download the 2012/2013 version here.
    It's a .msi file which install an Autoloader plug-in.
    After installation, you'd find a "Autodesk DWG MgdDBG.bundle" folder in "%appdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins".
    The Visual Studio solution is in .\Contents\Resources\DWGMgdDbgSource.
    After re-compiling it for AutoCAD 2015, you'll have to edit the PackageContents.xml.

    Hi,

    Here's a new "Autodesk DWG MgdDBG.bundle" folder to put in the "%appdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins" (rename "Autodesk DWG MgdDBG.bundle_original" the previous one if any).
    It should work for AutoCAD 2012 to 2015.

    I only add two new projects for A2014 and A2015 and compiled them. I had to make some changes in the source codes for A2015 creating a specific GraphicsInterface_2015.cs file and using conditional compilation wherever else it was necessary.

    Despite PackageContents.xml needing some improvements (i.e., Platform="AutoCAD*|AutoCAD" for R18.2, etc. ), I just tested in AutoCAD and Civil 3D 2015, and all is working well so far; thanks, Gile.

    Cheers

    Thank you Gile, I will give it a try today and let you know how it works.

    Thanks again

    It is working fine with AutoCAD 2015. I used Diff tool to compare GraphicInterface and GraphicInterface_2015 and I saw that your commented some lines (e.g. (Line 102) ShadowParameters2, (Line 204)Variant data type) and changed some classes (e.g. (Line 499) MaterialTraits2 to MaterialTrait).

    Could you please clarify to me these changes? (why is it happening?, will it affect the tool?)

    Some APIs have been moved, some others removed.
    Look at the ObjectARX 2015 docs: ObjectARX\docs\arxmgd.chm > Migration Guide > .NET Migration Guide.
